Belfast is OK as long as you go on a sunday...  
Not overly enamoured with it at the best of times myself if i am honest though.

I know you seen these.





We have to make the pilgramage there every time we are over...  

Did you happen upon the Wizard of Zigton Stone in the churchyard Pete ?

What was the purpose of those wee steps?

I didn't see the Wizard Of Zigton stone. Another excuse to go back I suppose. What is it anyway

I did visit the chapel that my great-great granny/granda were married in. Fivemiletown.

Glenariff Forest Park



Giants Causeway



Carrick-a-Rede Bridge




Some of my images are looking really soft after resizing/sharpening. Those are OK but some are turning out really bad. Need to sort that.

Thanks Alex aye it was a great wee holiday. I'll be back over soon.

This is Glens Hedge School and a house belonging to an old woman called Nanny. Strange. There was 3 caves next to each other. I believe the third one that was flooded was used as the school so just imagine one of these caves only wider :)

A return visit to the city doesn't really interest me to be honest although I might have to try something out the excellently named:

As far as the wife's family know the original church was fully walled and the steps were how you got there as there was no gate.
Other than this explanation i have no clue but there is a bout 6 sets of them if you follow the old path.

I also visited the Strange Dwellings... not too long vacated either according to an old guy who was walking along the roadside.

Never seen that chippy when i was there . Wondering WTF a George Best Burger is...
Probably Dribblin in grease... Half Cooked Over a Bottle of "Whiskey"   (Yes Irish Whiskey)
